Where to play?
Electric Avenue is an All41Studios 6 reel, 4 rows, high variance video slots with 4,096 paylines. We’re seeing more real money slots releases from All41Studios which is great. Its next release has an 80s neon-style rock theme, and it veers away from the standard reel structure. We’ve seen plenty of highly innovative slots developers, unfortunately, we can’t say the same about All41Studios so far. Note, we’re not out to slate them. As online slots experts, we always try and give them the benefit of the doubt.
Its previous release, Arena of Gold was received with mixed feelings by the online casino community. Let’s hope Electric Avenue stacks up against the competition and All41Studios can redeem itself. We already mentioned that Electric Avenue is a high variance slot, therefore you’ll have to slug it out a bit if you want the big wins. It offers a non-progressive jackpot of 6,833x (£$204,990) your stake which is quite big. So, at least the high roller casino VIPs have something to nibble at.
RTP & Symbols
The minimum bet per spin is £$0.20 to £$30 per spin. The maximum bet is not that bad per se; especially if the RTP is 95.49% and the Hit Ratio is 25.7%. Electric Avenue reduces the volatility even further with its Wild Reels (Expanding Wilds), Free Spins with Power Wilds and Free Spins with a multiplier Wild Wheel. Therefore, we’re looking at two different Free Spins features and expanding wilds in the main game. Question is, will the expanding wilds make a significant impact on payouts in the main game? Or, will they simply be bench warmers? We’ll know soon enough.
The symbols that appear on the reels are low-value cards such as diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades. The 80s theme further chugs along with a DeLorean (scatter), Rubik’s cube, polaroid camera, ghetto blaster, pink sunglasses, a can of soda, and purple sneakers. The ghetto blaster is the most valuable of the lot. Land six of them anywhere you’ll pocket 50x your stake. When the Wilds pop in the main game they can cover an entire reel with multipliers of up to 5x. More than one Wild can pitch, however, we understand that their respective multipliers can combine for the bigger wins. Therefore, we’re happy to see that play in the base game is not as ‘meh‘ as we thought.
All41Studios said that Electric Avenue ‘heats’ up during the Free Spins. We know this is a common saying throughout the industry and plenty of slots enthusiasts like ourselves came off second best because of it. Electric Avenue scores a few brownie points from us though. You’ll receive scatter pays of up to 20x your stake for 3, 4, 5 or 6 and they trigger the Free Spins feature. A new screen opens up which gives you a choice between two Free Spins: Neon Free Spins and Free Spins.
Neon Free Spins
The Neon Free Spins feature offers you 10 free spins and it comes with a Wild Wheel. Interestingly the Wild Wheel pitches on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and attached to it are multipliers of 11x, 22x, 33x, 44x and 55x. The Wild Wheel has a Hit Rate of 20%, therefore it pops up on every second free spin, or so. You can re-trigger the free spins should another 3 or more scatter appear.
Electric Free Spins
If you chose the Electric Free spins option you’ll receive 7 free spins along with Power Wilds. Before the free spins feature starts a random symbol is picked. Keep your eye on it because when it pitches on the middle reels it becomes a Power Wild, and the reels are locked until the feature ends. You’ll also receive an extra 3 free spins when Power Wilds cover a reel.
We can write a small dissertation about Electric Avenue because it’s basically a skin of plenty of other slots online – but, we won’t. There’s isn’t a slots developer we haven’t come across that hasn’t “borrowed” a few ideas from its competition – so we’ll just leave it at that. Instead, we’ll just focus on what’s in front of us.
The base game has wilds with 5x multipliers, and you’re given a choice between two Free Spin options. Of the free spins, we prefer the Neo Free Spins option because of the top multiplier of 55x. We fired Electric Avenue up in the free slots version. To see if the wild multipliers and the Neon Free Spins look as good in reality as they do on paper. Well, our biggest win was 15x our stake and we failed to trigger the free spins within 50 spins. So much for luck!
Will we play the slots for real money? We won’t. Simply because the features discussed through this review look way better than they do on paper than in practice. Also, we’d like to see All41Studious think outside the box for a change instead of borrowing heavily from other studios.
